no maximum overcoat time

Hello everybody again!

Curing time is very short: 3 to 6 hours for overcoat with no maximum overcoat time, which facilitates a flexible application schedule for the contractor.

The underlined section in bold type seems out of place and illogical to me.

Could you help me to understand what it means?

    Some finishes, especially clear finishes for wood floors, require that you re-coat within a narrowly defined time range.

    The instructions might read: Re-coat 30 to 60 minutes after initial application or wait 24 hours and sand then re-coat.

    But with the "no maximum time" added then the person doing the finishing can work with a more relaxed timing schedule. That relaxed timing schedule would be "flexible application schedule".
